    I figured I would ask as I didn't c the information anywhere else. What is the roof status for MNF if the forecast holds (76 and sunny during the day). IK it will be colder at night but I dont think it will be cold enough to get outside the 50-80 rule.

    Ik its early but any word yet? If not, i guess i'll have to wait until game day. Would love to c it open for the night game.

    Per Nat weather service:

    Monday: Partly sunny, with a high near 72.

    Monday Night: A 30 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 52.

    If that 30% holds, expect the roof to be closed even if the closest rain is in New Mexico. :foottap:

    They will probably send out more details in the pre-game e-mail.

    Off topic, but when we were leaving the Monday after the Niner game Houston was in the beginnings of a long rainy day and I noticed they had the roof closed. The day after a game I would have thought they would let Mom Nature to the watering.

    They remove the turf after games, anyway. That grass may have been
    getting its water OUTSIDE of Reliant Stadium.

    True, true. I forget they take it outside all the time.

    I'd like it open. Last year against Jax the red fireworks above the stadium were pretty cool to see.

    I'm gonna be out there early in the morning, banging on the door like the mervyns super sale lady. "open... Open... Open..."

    I love a football game in November, especially when it's outdoors!

    I wish the roof would be open.....Last year the Texans won because the roof was open and Jeff Fisher was worried about kicking a field goal in the wind, so instead went for an unsuccessful 4th down play.

    I hope it's open. I like the aerial shots ESPN does of the stadium/city.

    Yup, Nat weather service is backing off the chances for rain some. Now down to 20% -

    Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 75.

    Monday Night: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 52.

    they also have a little discussion you can click on which says -
